Using a TTY Model 43 teleprinter with Linux

Using a monitor isn't the only way to receive output from a computer of course and indeed in the early days the main way to get output was from a printer. A teleprinter is a kind of combination typewriter and printer that was used in the early days of computing (and still now occasionally) with commands typed in and output from the computer received and printed out. Here one is being used to communicate with a modern Linux computer.
